Heinz Peter Günthardt (born 8 February 1959) is a retired tennis player from Switzerland.

Tennis player career

Günthardt won five singles titles during his professional career, including the Rotterdam WCT in 1980. The right-hander reached his career-high ATP singles ranking of world No. 22 in April 1986.

In doubles, he captured a total number of 30 titles. Günthardt won the men's doubles at the 1985 Wimbledon Championships with Balázs Taróczy, and the mixed doubles at the 1985 US Open with Martina Navratilova. He was also a member of the Swiss team at the 1988 Olympic Games.[1]

Coaching career

Günthardt was the coach of Steffi Graf from the start of 1992 until the end of Graf's tennis playing career in July 1999, and he also worked briefly with Jelena Doki? and Jennifer Capriati.[2]

From February to November 2010, he coached former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic.[3] He had not coached full-time since Graf's retirement in 1999.[4] When Günthardt started coaching her, Ivanovic had dropped out of the WTA's top 20, and she dropped to a career low of world No. 65 in July 2010.[5] During their partnership, Ivanovic recovered to world No. 17[6][7] before Günthardt ended his coaching relationship with her due to family responsibilities.[8]
